Structural Electron Crystallography (Language of Science)by Douglas L. Dorset
Synopses & Reviews
This authoritative text on electron diffraction and crystal structure analysis is the first to describe direct phasing techniques in electron crystallography. Written for electron diffractionists and electron microscopists, this fully illustrated volume presents methods for specimen preparation, data collection and structure analysis. Chapters feature numerous detailed examples of actual structure analyses and contain over 350 illustrations.
Book News Annotation:
Drawing on the work of B.K. Vainshtein and others, this account of the technique used in modern structural research emphasizes the quantitative determination of crystal structures from electron diffraction data. The first five chapters provide an overview of quantitative crystallography using the electron microscope, and cover the preparation and preservation of specimens. The rest of the book explores areas of research such as molecular organic and inorganic structures, the alkanes and derivatives, linear polymers, and globular macromolecules. Includes b&w photos and diagrams.
